A couple from South India migrated to US as the boy was undergoing an Offshore assignment. Recently shifted , they were very happy with the country and were marvelled with everything that the country was offering.
She was Swati and He was Sharad.
Swati: Hey baby, Whats up?
Sharad: Hi, What you doing honey? I have a meeting at 6 so finishing up the tasks on hand.
Swati: When you will be done with it? I want to go somewhere.
Sharad: It will take 40 mins. Will come home and then we can head to that place.
Swati: Okay cool.
Swati: I want to go and check out channel. They are offering new bags and accessories.
Sharad: What? Which channel is that?
Swati: I have the address and details. Lets go. It will not take much time from here. Its very near.
Sharad unwillingly accepted his wife’s request and started to drive.
Swati: Yes, Yes, Please stop. Here it is.
Sharad: Watching that, he was awestruck.
And there it was CHANEL. A French fashion brand famous for its fabrics, boutiques and wide range of female accessories. Often Chanel is mispronounced as Channel by the Indians.
So watch out: CHANEL pronounced as Sha-nel and not as Channel.
